Italian - Ewer Basin with Female Bust - Walters 481322

description

Summary

The composition of this basin, with a female profile on the central boss and a six-part band of vegetal and geometric ornamentation, is typical of earthenware produced in Deruta during the early 16th century. There are records of basins, together with their ewers, given as special toiletry items to young women. This basin with an idealized female portrait at center may have served as such a piece.
